and massachusetts for obama. you can mark that down. actually, i could call 40 states right now. only 10 are in play at the moment. but i'm not going to be a total waffle guy this evening. i think mitt romney will win florida. if the governor wins ohio as well, he will be the next president of the united states. but that's a big if. president obama seems to have blunted romney's momentum over the weekend. talking points predicted that would happen last week. because of hurricane sandy, and because the national media simply refuses to cover the libyan situation. so while romney had momentum one week ago, the storm stalled it. and that's where we are tonight. both candidates slugging it out, momentum for both somewhat subdued. in just about four hours the good folks in dixville, noch, new hampshire will cast the first ballots. i love the notch. nature at its best up there romney will most likely carry the notch. but new hampshire seems to be leaning obama. if president obama loses the election, it will be because he could not convince americans that his big government philosophy would improve the econ

obama's big win tuesday night is as a big win for him and the democratic party. but along with that big win for the democrats, tuesday was also a big loss for republicans and for ideas they had been pushing. it's the ronald reagan philosophy. low taxes are the solution to everything. and government is always the problem. >> in this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem. republicans have pummeled that bush on you tuesday, americans by the millions rejected those ideas. on taxes, 60% of voters said they should be increased. clearly the president is wins that argument in the eyes of the country, but not just taxes. voighters said enough of squabbling over the definition of rape. they represented strong female representatives. >> despite the odds, you elected the first woman senator to the state of massachusetts. >> i am well aware that i will have the honor to be wisconsin's first woman u.s. senator. there is no way that clair mccaskill can survive. you know what happened? you proved them wrong. >>> on tuesday americans decided to send a r

obama is taking his fight over the fiscal cliff today heading to hatfield, pennsylvania. he is going to tour the rhodon group manufacturing facility. >> that's a place the white house says is one of the many businesses that depends upon middle class shoppers this holiday season. rhodon manufactures connect brand. that time group sells toys like angry birds building sets and tinker toys. at the end of the year, as i am sure you know by now the average middle class family is facing a 2,000 dollar tax hike. on monday of this week the white house released a report saying that could be americans spending $200,000,000,000 less in 2013. the president will continue to push his message but is it time to reach a deal over the fiscal cliff? but the g.o.p. is not so keen on a deal, at least the one the white house presented yesterday. the first offer from president obama and treasury secretary timothy geithner included a $1.6 trillion tax increase along with an extension of the payroll answer it cut and unemployment insurance and a request for $50,000,000,000 worth

on the other side. republicans had the truth, obama had launched a war over abortion. and on the life issue. and he got to define what that issue was and what is it? rape. abortion meant rape in the minds of many voters because the debate was not fully engaged. his weaknesses, his extreme positions on late term abortions, on sex selection abortion, not saving children born after a failed abortion, none of these were exploited in any debate. even the lies he put forward went unaddressed. the allies at planned parenthood does mammograms. the lie that hospitals that have religious tenets will not be forced to fund abortion inducing drugs and sterilization. voters disagreed with those extreme positions of the president and the democratic party. moving forward, the republican party and its candidates must expose and exploit those vulnerability is or risk alienating the tremendous and growing pro-life base that year after year election after election has delivered a winning in red. the war and women, was that the effective? did it most women voters? when you look at the data you have to say no. t
obama's reelection was settled at about 11:15 p.m. eastern last tuesday, the election overall is still underway in some parts of the country, including one place where it appears to have mostly just broken down with a bunch of federal level races still undecided. and the state in question is not florida for once. important updates coming up there including what may be a deconcession by a democrat who previously thought he had lost in a big important u.s. senate race. that's all ahead. >>> but we have to begin with breaking news out of washington. "the washington post" is reporting tonight that president obama is considering massachusetts senator john kerry as his new secretary of defense. that's right, defense. putting the decorated veteran and former presidential candidate in charge at the pentagon and not at the state department, as had been widely speculated. "the washington post" is sourcing its reporting to unnamed senior administration officials. senator kerry is also not commenting tonight. if senator kerry does move to the cabinet for defense or any other post, there will be an
it is mostly good news for president obama. unemployment ticked up to 7.9%, but more jobs were added than expected, 171,000 to be precise. stock futures went up right after the numbers came out. later oil prices took a tumble. both the president and governor romney reacted to the report during stops on the campaign trail this morning. >> we made real progress, but we are here today because we know we've got more work to do. >> unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. think of that. >> and joining any now is "newsweek" columnist zachary caribel. let's get your analysis of the numbers. >> unemployment ticked up, but statistically it's a nonfactor. it's been where it is now for the past six, seven, eight months. it doesn't matter who is elected on tuesday. that's likely where we are. it's the only more than silver lining is you have moderate job creation. i think no one would prefer having less than 171,000 jobs created in a month. that's where we are right now. >> the anticipation was 125,000 job woos would be added. it's so intriguing the dynamics playing out in the
coverage at 3:35 eastern. tonight live coverage of both obama and romney in their f inal rallies. president obama is wrapping up in des moines, iowa, while mitt romney will be in new hampshire. live coverage starts at 8:00 eastern. a reminder to watch the results in presidential, house, senate, and governors races across the country. victory and concession speeches from candidates, plus your reaction to route the night, and it begins at 8:00 eastern tomorrow night on c-span, c-span radio, and c-span.org c- span.org. >> when you have the infrastructure, there are quality vulnerabilities to natural disasters. in terms of the fcc's engagement, the chairman spent the night at the agency. our public safety person to the state. we are working on firsthand with fema to make an overall assessment in terms of those initial numbers. of 25% of cell towers were disabled during this process. what the fcc does and will continue to do is to work with these entities to assess the situation on the ground and to more so used this information to see what we can do better going forward. gnon clybrun, tonight a
're tired of things like i have one goal, to defeat obama. that is gone. obama was reelected overwhelmingly. the american people want us to work together. republicans want us to work together. democrats want us to work together. they want to balance the -- a balanced approach to everything. especially with the huge deficit and taxes are part of that. i can remember my first president after i had been selected as the democratic leader. i was so afraid, i really was. and as i do on occasion, off the cuff, i said i know how to fight. i know how to dance. i do not dance as well as i fight but i would much rather dense hair -- any time and i still feel that way. it is better to dance than to fight. it is better to work together ho. everything does not have to be a fight. that is how it has been the last couple of years. everyone should comprehend especially my senate friends that legislation is the art of compromise with consensus building. that is political scientists have studied this for generations, they continue to say the way we get things done is to work together. we need republicans to h
hampshire in the tiny village of dixville notch. president obama got five votes and governor mitt romney got five. and the outcome is expected to be just as close nationwide. >> that's right. three new polls of likely voters have just come out. one of them has romney leading by one point. another one shows a tie. and the third has the president leading by three points. this morning, our correspondents are all across the country. they are covering the presidential race. the other important races and the impact of superstorm sandy on election day. >> governor romney made a surprise announcement monday his campaign is not over. he'll be making two last-minute stops today. >> that's right. jan crawford is in belmont, massachusetts, the republican candidate's hometown. jan, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. governor romney and his wife ann will be here in this polling place behind me later this morning about 8:30 to vote. and romney is off to the campaign trail. he's got stops in cleveland and then in pittsburgh. ohio, of course, a state he really needs to win, and pennsylvania, that's one
-- but the democrats always loved obama bomb. how do you beat a guy who became an american icon in 2008 with a guy no one really liked? >> who do they like in the republican party? >> that's what i'm telling you they didn't like -- >> who do they like? >> i'll tell you who they like. they really like jeb bush but, unfortunately, his last name is a ball and chain around his neck. i want to go back to your earlier point -- >> how do you make this assumption they like him if he has a bad name? >> i'll get to -- >> will they vote for him? you're saying they like him but they wouldn't vote for him. >> no, i'm -- >> what do you mean a ball around his chain? >> bush. >> i know. that means they won't vote for him. >> okay. maybe -- i don't know that. >> i thought like meant you voted for that guy. that's why your party has all kinds of problems. necessity don't know -- the danger problem for the republican party is what they deeply believe won't sell. >> a larger point is the hard right has never legitimized this president. they have never said he's an american, like he is. they've never said he's a chris
>>> newly elected president obama is back in washington, automatic spending cuts and tax increases set to go into effect at the beginning of the year, known together as the fiscal cliff. members of one of the most deeply divided congresses in history are sending smoke signals up capitol hill to note they are ready to get back to the bargaining table. >> mr. president, this is your moment. we are ready to be led, not as democrats or republicans, but as americans. >> i want to work together, but i want everyone to also understand, you can't push us around. we want to work together. >> as washington digs back in, politicians and pundits alike are still post-gaming obama's election night victory. >> as soon as the votes started coming in and we matched them up against the model, we were well convinced that the thing was going to go according to plan. >> republicans in a crisis of their own after mitt romney's disastrous defeat. does the governor's loss and demise signal a greater crossroads for the grand 'ole party? >> i think it's more of a branding problem because the branding proble
working to build this campaign because they believe in barack obama and his message and the policy he moved forward -- to move this country forward. that is what won in this election. across battleground states, we are currently sitting at 50.4. i think we will get a little better than president bush's margin in the 2004 election. our margin over republicans declined about 3.7% compared to 2008. 5.3 in non battleground states. millions of ballots are still being counted, 4 million in california alone. sometime today we think we will be officially the winner in florida. as of right now, total turnout and number of voters has increased in colorado, iowa, minnesota, nevada, north carolina, and wisconsin. it looks like it decreased in 35 of 49 battleground states. the total turnout may be higher in 2008 when all the votes are finally counted. as we planned for, total minority vote share increased to 28%. our coalition turnout, women made up about the same percent of the electorate as in 2008. we got 65% of women voters. for lots of reporting about youth turnout, they continue to turn out
it the november surprise. in 90 minutes, president obama will hold his first press conference since re-election and he will be holding it amid circumstances no one could have predicted. just one week after america gave him a second term, at a time of high stakes negotiations over the so-called fiscal cliff, the president will likely face questions about a salacious sex scandal involving the now former cia director. >> does the president see this in general as an unwelcomed distraction at a time when he's just -- was re-elected and has a bunch of priorities in terms of the fiscal cliff and in terms of his cabinet? >> well, i certainly i think wouldn't call it welcome. obviously the, as i said to ben, the information about general petraeus came to him as a surprise. >> not exactly welcome is perhaps an understatement. the resignation of general david petraeus as cia director hangs another question mark over america's intelligence community and foreign pollicy leadership. with petraeus out he could tap john owe brennan to take over at the cia. secretary of state hillary clinton has insist
on current.com about john kerry and why president obama should give him the job of secretary of state and not ambassador susan rice. nothing against ambassador susan rice. it is just that john kerry deserves it. he's the chairman of the senate foreign relations committee and oh, by the way again without john kerry saying oh yeah, president obama, barack obama you can do the keynote speech in 2004 when you're only a state senator who's running for senate without that opportunity, there is no obama campaign in 2008. john kerry wants the job. give it to him. got some guy malcolm johnson would calls that 100% idiotic statement. too bad, malcolm. that's how it is. special shout out to the folks on twitter. dab ra and alan -- debra and alan and a couple of others. honesty following us on twitter. >> tweeting at bp show, on this topic, patricia says the media has been reduced to reporting g.o.p. conspiracy theories which is a good point. buckeye kenny saying they're going to try to turn this into something to ruin the presid
who said his job was to see that obama is never reelected. but did not happen. so, he has an edge year. he does have leverage. but it will be a long haul. he does need partners. >> mitch mcconnell is on the record as saying that he knows that the election makes some people think that the republicans are going to roll over. agreed to democrat demands that a hike taxes before the end of the year. that does not sound like compromise. >> your definition of compromise is rolling over and excepting higher tax rates. that is the democratic definition of compromise. i would never suggest bias. the president ran -- i will say it -- the most negative campaign. he did not run on his record. he could not. he did not run on a program. there is one thing he got a mandate for, and he now has a mandate to raise the top tax rate on two percent of the population by four points? that is the smallest mandate in american history. >> can i say a vicious truth? -- what the republicans will agreed to, john boehner came out the day after the election with a peace pipe. liberals have difficulty understanding th
